Text Tracking effect but for solid layers.
on Nov 16, 2016 at 1:16:20 pm

Hi folks,

hope you can help.

I'm trying to create an effect like tracking in text, but for a number of solid layers.

Imagine a number of small squares (say 8) all in a line. I want to be able to move a master control (slider or some some such) and have each tile move a set distance away from the tile to its left.

I'm not great with expressions, but tried...

transform.position+thisComp.layer("Width Slider").effect("Slider Control")("Slider")

but that, of course, moves all tiles by the same amount and pushes them all along.

Anyone have any ideas?
